Exclamation HFP Fit Wheels 16x6.5 - 55 offset on EF Hatch

I was looking at the 16" HFP Fit wheels to put on my 89 hatch dx, 205-45-16 tires.
Part # is 08W16-SLN-100.

**They have 55 offset**

I have searched and found posts but nothing that answers the following:

1) Will these fit without spacers?
2) any pics of folks running them without spacers? I want to see how "sucked in" they would look.

If I do have to use 10mm spacers, are the longer studs necessary or can I get away with stock studs and lugnuts?

Although I can get the wheels pretty cheap getting longer studs installed will be pretty expensive Im told.

Any help or suggestions would be appreciated greatly.
I saw other threads mentioning spacers being needed so the wheels dont look "sucked in" the wheel wells - but when I use an offset calculator to compare my stock 13's to the HFP 16's it says that actually the outside of the rim will EXTEND an extra 9mm than stock.....so they would look less "sucked in" than the stock wheels, yes?

I understand the real issue would be the inside of the rim hitting suspension etc...but I dont think that will be a prob since the wheels are 6.5 wide and the tires size I'd be using (205-45-16).
I ran 18's on my last hatch without spacers and had no issues with inside of rim hitting supsension....it was close but didnt hit and I had zero probs.

But I defer to the experts...anyone?
Thanks.
